Orange Flowers and around our yard

Fabaceae 1

Not much about recipes today…

The above orange flower is Aeschynomene genus of flowering plants in the family Fabaceae (Legumes/Pea/Bean). They are known commonly as Jointvetches. These legumes are most common in warm regions and many species are aquatic.  These were growing wild in the Dinosaur Valley Park, Glen Rose- Texas. There are over 100 species found of the Aeschynomene. I could not specify the species of flower as I could not locate this particular color anywhere, most of what I found was yellow or in the purple shades.
